A busy past couple of days! Thursday morning’s ride was a repeat of last Thursday morning’s ride, with rain/drizzle that ran through the first part of the ride, wet roads all the way until the very end, when the sun comes out, just as the forecast said it would. But this time we didn’t just climb Kings and return, choosing to skip out on only the West Old LaHonda section. Kevin (pilot) was the only person joining Kevin (my son) and I, but that’s one more person than last week! No records anywhere, pretty easy ride up Kings, and the younger Kevin is still not back up to speed. Hopefully that will change soon.
On the commute to the shop my bike forced me to detour to Donut King. Must be a bad steering bearing or something, because it keeps happening.
And today? The very last time for a coffee run to Mainstreet Coffee, near the shop. The owners have sold the place after recognizing that the land was worth a lot more than what they were making at the business, so they cashed out. Pretty sad, but I understand. Not an issue I’ll ever face because we don’t own either of our locations, but I know of two bike local bike shops whose land is worth far, far more than whatever income they’re generating from their retail business.
